Jared Leto pays homage to The Killing Joke in latest Suicide Squad tease

04.10.2015

Suicide Squad David Ayer Jared Leto Will Smith Margot Robbie

Jared Leto wasn't able to make it to the first SUICIDE SQUAD table read due to being on tour with his band 30 Seconds to Mars, but some fans still wanted to know "Where is Jared?" Director David Ayer has responded to that question by tweeting a new look at the actor's Joker transformation, and the image pays homage to the classic Alan Moore and Brian Bolland graphic novel Batman: The Killing Joke.

Smile!

Suicide Squad David Ayer Jared Leto

Throw some red lipstick and a snazzy purple suit on Jared Leto and I'd say he's almost good to go as The Joker. Filming for SUICIDE SQUAD will begin sometime this month, and with San Diego Comic-Con 2015 just three months away, I'm wondering if that is when we will get the first official look at the main cast (which includes Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Will Smith as Deadshot, Jai Courtney as Boomerang, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flag) in costume. Which SUICIDE SQUAD character are you the most excited to see on the big screen?

SUICIDE SQUAD is set to open on August 5, 2016.

Well, you cant say Leto's heart isn't in it. This movie is either going to be a home run or a strikeout I think. But I actually am more excited about Robbie as Harley Quinn. I feel like the potential is there for a super sexy, funny, badass character.

Exactly what has Robbie ever done that makes you believe she can be a badass in a movie?

At this point, the only thing I care about with this movie is Cara Delevingne. At least it won't have to meet any expectations for me, that can be a good thing at times.

Who cares?

You mean he's going to have green hair as the Joker? GTFO!

Not excited at all about this guy as the Joker, and not very excited about this movie in general. Casting Will Smith as Deadshot, Leto as the Joker and losing Tom Hardy pretty much ended any enthusiasm I had for it. Shame, I'm a big fan of the comic books.

Oh please. What fucking difference did he make in Fight Club or American Psycho? He had one fucking line in Fight Club. I don't care about an academy award. Before that no one considered the guy a great actor and he's been around for 20 years.

Is "None" an option?

Leto may be the only interesting character, but I'm not holding out hope. This thing looks epically bad to me.

I'm just as curious about Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn as I am Leto's Joker. Deadshot comes next on my curiosity meter but everything else is...whatever for now. I'm sure my opinion will change once trailers are released.

I can't see any way she actually plays the role as written. The woman has never even performed an action sequence, but she's somehow going to play Harley? Either she's going to player her as a helpless nut-job, or the shaky cam on this is going to be vomit-inducing.

I don't get the whole "Gal Gadot/Margot Robbie" are NOT their characters....I get it when people complain about Jai Courteney. The guy can't act with an American accent. But Robbie has already proven herself. I know she can pull off Harley Quinn because of her performance in Wolf of Wall Street.

In The Wolf Of Wall Street, she played a greedy, gold-digging tramp. Harley is a psychotic murderer who is an expert in hand-to-hand combat.

Remind me again how the first made you so convinced she'd be great at the second?

BTW, Gal Gadot is a bad-ass. She's skinny, but she is fully qualified to perform action sequences. Robbie is a model who's never done anything more action packed than give Leo a peek under her skirt....

Seriously, Des1? There are these things called physical trainers, and stunt coordinators, and actors. Just because she'd never filmed an action film before doesn't mean she can't be trained to. You know what Bruce Willis' biggest credit was before starring in Die Hard, arguably the greatest action movie of all time? A romantic comedy with Kim Bassinger. An actors job is literally to be able to play different characters, most of them can play more than one type of person...

Isn't that why stunt doubles exist? I mean, not every actor can be Tom Cruise and do their own stunts. As long as she gets the personality right...

Yes, we've all seen what Matt Damon movies look like when they have to use shaky cam and cutaways to cover for his inability to look convincing in a fight. If that's what you're looking for in a comic book movie, more power to you.

I'm pretty sure Leto will bring a lot to make The Joker his best role the best he can.

I'm surprised more people aren't excited about his upcoming portrayal. It's going to be awesome to see how he differentiates himself from Nicholson's and Ledger's versions.

Jared could perform the best Joker ever

wait and see.... I know Nicholson and Ledger put the bar very high
but, this guy is so talented he could made us forget the previous ones...
Not the movie I expect the most, but certainly the performance I am the most looking forward....
